IEI Laboratories for AMIE Students

The task of construction and procurement of equipment for the following four labs for usage by AMIE Students was entrusted to ESCI by IEI HQ sanctioning an amount of Rs.1.95 Crores with an objective to enable the AMIE students appearing for Section-B Examinations to undergo practical training as per syllabus as well as to conduct experiments.

  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electronics & Computer Science Engineering

Accordingly, four buildings were constructed and the following labs have been set-up:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electronics & Computer Science Engineering
  • 3-D Printing – Design & Prototyping Centre

Civil Engineering Lab

Equipment pertaining to Geotechnical, Concrete, Transportation, Environment & Public Health Engg have been procured and installed.
